Tune Into New Podcast Series: Conversations About Health Care Delivery in the United States

Springer Publishing launched a new monthly health care podcast series, Conversations About Health Care Delivery in the United States, featuring discussions with prominent experts, innovators, and leaders in the health sector available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Amazon Music starting on March 7.

The podcast series is hosted by Jim Knickman, the former Robert Derzon Chair at the NYU Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, and Brian Elbel, MPH, Professor of Population Health and Health Policy at NYU Wagner and the NYU Grossman School of Medicine. The series dives into complex and challenging issues affecting the U.S. health care system, its workforce, and the populations interacting with it, covering topics like health management, public health, health behavior, population health, healthcare quality, and health economics.

Knickman and Elbel engage with guests who are leaders in the health sector, from aging services to health policy, to learn more about the key drivers shaping the health care system, challenges and complexities related to health inequities, and the exciting career opportunities available to future health care professionals and leaders.

The podcast series is a companion to the 13th edition of Jonas and Kovner’s Health Care Delivery in the United States, as each episode has ties to essential concepts, challenges, complexities, and themes in the textbook.
